Savannah State University to Offer Certificate Program in Virtual Forensic Science

Historically Black Savannah State University has added a certificate program in virtual forensic science to its academic offerings. The new program will include the study of evidence processing, documentation, and analysis.

The new certificate initiative builds upon the forensic sciences degree program, but will be open to students in any major and those employed in law enforcement, military, forensic science, criminal justice, or homeland security. The program will provide immersive learning experience with the 3D virtual reality crime scene housed at Savannah State. The coursework will cover procedures necessary for the proper use of 3D technology in criminal investigations including 3D scanning, processing, analyzing, and the use of 3D virtual reality technology in courtroom presentation of crime scene evidence.

The certificate program will begin in the fall 2019 semester on the university’s main campus and at Georgia Southern University’s Liberty campus in Hinesville, Georgia.
